We've officially moved in..changed addresses, hooked up power, etc. My wonderful parents showed up about an hour after us in Denver to help us get settled and have stayed for over a week. So sweet! I'm going to be so bored once they leave and not know what to do with myself. Cory is working full time at the Denver V.A. As soon as he gets home he has to study up on different things and then goes to bed early for all of the early mornings he has now. Fun fun! I will have to make some friends fast or I may go insane :) Denver is gorgeous and has pretty much everything Phoenix does, minus the 115 degree weather thank goodness! I've already found a beautiful fancy mall with a great play area for my girls...Oh and I've found a new favorite store Anthropologie where I can't afford anything, but it's still fun to look! I know it's not a new store but I had never been before. The housewares are amazing and so unique!
I've had a great time exploring and finding out where everything is. We like our apartment. It's on the second floor above our garage which is kind of frustrating since we've never had to deal with stairs before. Kristen wants to walk up and down them all by herself and If I try to help she screams! It's going to be interesting to see how I will get groceries and both kids up the stairs in one piece! And our stair options are not ideal...the "secret passageway" stairs are inside the apartment leading to the garage and our side door. They are super steep with cement at the bottom...the other are outside hard cement ones. The problem is, you can see through the space between the steps and Lauren is SOOOO afraid of heights and sometimes begs to be carried! Good times! haha Oh and we have a ton of windows that are nice and big and let in the nice cool breeze but the windows are closer to the ground and I'm seriously afraid the girls with fall through the screens, so now I can only have them part way open. So many new things to get used to! Wish me luck! I will post pictures soon when my parents leave and I have ample time on my hands...stay tuned!
